E3 2012: Report: All Wii Digital Purchases Can Be Transferred To Wii U

According to ABC News in an interview with Nintendo’s Scott Moffitt, all WiiWare and Wii Virtual Console purchases will be transferable to the Wii U.

Nintendo’s new console will utilize user membership in place of the Wii’s system registration, allowing purchases to be linked to an account, and for more than one person to have an account on the same system.

This is definitely welcome news to those of us with massive Virtual Console collections, and it’s good to hear that we will no longer risk losing all of our digital purchases should the console fail.
